Selected Letters of William Styron
NY, Random House, (2012). The uncorrected proof copy. With an autograph note signed from Rose Styron to Peter [Matthiessen] laid in, conveying the proof and hoping for a blurb. Matthiessen appears repeatedly in the text, although he is more often mentioned in letters than the recipient of letters, because those Styron was closest to, "like Peter Matthiessen" (according to the introduction), Styron saw or phoned so frequently. Matthiessen and Styron were friends for over 50 years, beginning in Paris in the early 1950s. Near fine in wrappers. [#032446] SOLD
